Unformatted text preview: of polynomials. It can only be used when the divisor has the form x a. The idea is to work only with the coefficients of the polynomials involved. From a previous example: 24 18 9 3 4 2 3+ + x x x x 3x 2 3x 3 +12x 2 3x 2 18x  24 3x 3x 2 12x  6x  24 6 6x  24 x + 4 = x (4) 4 3 9  18  24 3123 126 24 Quotient = 3x 2 3x  6 Remainder = 0 Example 2 by 5 6 divide o division t synthetic Use 3+x x x 2 1 0 6 5 1 2 2 424 1 Quotient = x 2 +2x 2 Remainder = 1 Answer: x 3 6x + 5 = (x 2 +2x 2)(x  2) + 1 Example ) 8 4 2 )( 2 ( 2 that show o division t synthetic Use 2 3 4 4 + + +=x x x x x 2 1 0 0 0 16 1 2 2 4 4 8 8 16 Answer: x 4 2 4 = (x 3 +2x 2 + 4x + 8)(x  2)...
